It's worth watching all his other Wii videos as well. Amazing stuff.
It is very cool. You can download the software too. You just need a bluethooth adapter to connect the Wii remote to your PC.
Yes.. this is pretty hawt
im totally going home and hijacking my parents wii.
Can somebody enlighten me about that fancy bluetooth hardware one might need to connect the Wiimote to a laptop? I suck at new technologies.
Now this is art!
All you need is a bluetooth adapter. New computers (especially laptops) often have bluetooth built in.
The Wiimote is a standard bluetooth device so your computer should just detect it if it's powered on and within range.
Damn you, HP, for not including Bluetooth in my laptop!
I'll probably go look for an adapter tomorrow, but what price range should I expect?
Very cool. But why couldn't the remote have been attached to the head instead of the sensor bar, which is wired? Seems to me the relative motion would be the same, or simply inverted or whatever.
Bujold: Well, I ordered a cheap one for about $10 and it just plain didn't work with any of my bluetooth devices. So I went for a $50 one and it works perfectly. Go cheap as long as you can return it if it sucks, they vary.
lemoncurry: I think it would be the same, but having two little LEDs on your head and a tiny power source is much lighter/easier than the guts of the Wiimote and two double-A batteries. At least I think that's the main reason.
Oh yeah, I forgot about the LED safety glasses.
that tablet pc thing is real cool.
I think I might do that. lol.
